What you need to know!
Wisconsin Businesses affected by lack of snow can apply for Working Capital Loans from SBA
ATLANTA – The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) advises Wisconsin businesses engaged in hospitality, winter tourism, their suppliers, and those that provide support services to the hospitality and tourism industry to also consider the impact of lack of snow, low snow or low precipitation on their revenues and operations this past winter when applying for Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) for drought.
These working capital loans are available to eligible farm-related and nonfarm-related entities that suffered financial losses as a direct result of these declarations. Examples of eligible businesses include, but are not limited to hotels, restaurants, ski and snowmobile rentals, sleigh rides, snowboard manufacturers, and snow removal services.
The Village of DeForest, Village of Windsor, and the University of Wisconsin Extension are inviting community members to participate in a survey aimed at gathering information on local housing needs and preferences. Whether you are a homeowner, renter, employee of an area business, or planning to move to our communities, your perspective is important. Survey open through April 30, 2024.
